How to Get Cat Urine Smell Out of Carpet

The smell of cat urine is unmistakable and no one wants a house that smells of cat urine. You don't have to kick kitty to the curb if you have a cat that is urinating on the carpet. You can get your kitty to stop peeing on the carpet and remove the heavy smell of cat urine with a few easy tips.


Step 1

Blot up any excess cat urine with a white towel or paper towel. Use a white one so any dye or coloring doesn't get on the carpet, otherwise you're looking at a whole new problem.

Step 2

Use a commercially available pet urine clean-up product and spray it liberally on the spot. Next, place an absorbent towel loosely over the stain and stain remover. Let it sit for an hour at least, longer if it is a larger stain. The towel slowly absorbs the stain remover and draws the urine stain out of the carpet into the towel itself. Don't scrub, this can only scrub the stain deeper into the carpets roots where you'll never be able to get it out.

Step 3

Pour white vinegar onto the spot liberally and allow it to sit for several hours. Blot up with an absorbent towel.

Step 4

Use an electric product like the Little Green Machine to vacuum up the urine. Spray the area with the spray gun attached to your machine. The spray solution should be an over-the-counter solution you purchase for your machine made especially for pet odors.
